For a while the Lord has been speaking to me about a season coming where we must BUNKER DOWN in our homes for a time. And this week this word became more urgent as He spoke these words.
On 3rd December The Lord said, “Here comes the perfect storm—A time to prepare and bunker down.”
BUNKER DOWN MEANING IN GOOGLE:
To make yourself comfortable in a place or situation, or to prepare to stay in a place or position for a long time, usually for protection. To bunker down is to find shelter against attack, whether that shelter is physical or spiritual— People preparing for a storm would bunker down.
DREAM OF MILITARY PRESENCE
6th December, 2021– This morning, Lord showed me in a dream that military and police will be rounding up groups of people in outdoor settings especially playgrounds and parks.
In the dream a military leader / police officer walked up to a playground and said, “everyone here needs to come with us because there has been an outbreak and this is now a close contact zone.”
I believe the Lord is giving insight and warning to avoid certain out door locations for this next little while. To spend more time at home with your family, and with the Lord. To be in a place of HIDDENNESS in Him, and ABIDING in His word. A time of deep groans of intercession for your family, your city and your Nation. (I feel this word is more urgent for Australia and New Zealand)
DREAM OF THE PERFECT STORM
On 17th November 2021, I had a dream where I was upstairs in my home and as I looked out of the window, I saw a huge black storm cloud coming in the air. Suddenly, I spoke loudly— “I KNEW THIS WAS COMING! I SHOULD HAVE WARNED EVERYONE!” Then I ran around closing all of the windows in my home.
I knew this dream was the Lord prompting me to SOUND THE ALARM and prepare His people for the storms ahead. That this isn’t a time to share only words of encouragement and edification, but words to prepare His people so they can equip themselves, and be ready for the days ahead.
THE PERFECT STORM
The perfect storm will bring with it destruction and blessings—blessings for those who are marked with the mind of Christ, and destruction for those who are not. ABIDING in the Lord, and obeying His Word is crucial to be in a place of positioning to receive His blessing and protection in the coming days— to be unshakable and UNTOUCHABLE is to be rooted and ground in the one who is our strong foundation. (Psalms 91)
NOW IS THE TIME TO BE UNSHAKABLE
“Everyone who hears my teaching and applies it to his life can be compared to a wise man who built his house on an UNSHAKABLE foundation. When the RAINS fell and the FLOOD came, with FIERCE WINDS beating upon his house, it stood firm because of its strong foundation.
“But everyone who hears my teaching and DOES NOT apply it to his life can be compared to a foolish man who built his house on sand. When it RAINED and RAINED and the FLOOD came, with WIND and WAVES beating upon his house, it collapsed and was SWEPT AWAY.” Matthew 7:24-27 TPT
The Lord is saying, “Those who are not established in me, trusting in me, depending on me, and putting their faith in me— In the coming days they will be swept away when the storms come!”
NOW IS THE TIME TO ABIDE IN THE LORD
NOW is not the time to be comfortable, and to live for ourselves but to live our lives as BONDSLAVES for the purposes of the Lord— One who is marked with the mind of christ and lives solely to please Him.
The Lord has been holding back the perfect storm (the 4 winds) To prepare His Remnant (His bondslaves) to move in great demonstrations of power and Glory for the greatest harvest of lost souls ever seen before— For such a time as NOW! And the Lord is speaking very loudly to His people to awaken, to be positioned, and ready for the storms that are coming.
THE ANGEL ASCENDING FROM THE EAST
“Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, who had the seal of the living God. He shouted out with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to damage earth and sea, saying, “Do not damage the earth, the sea, or the trees until we have MARKED THE LOVING SERVANTS OF GOD WITH A SEAL ON THEIR FOREHEADS .” Revelation 7:2-3 TPT
This angel in Revelation has more authority than the four who would damage the earth, sea, and trees. It is the angel carrying the seal of God that speaks of God’s grace and mercy, which will always triumph over judgment (James 2:13)
This seal on the foreheads is THE MIND OF CHRIST. The winds of judgement have been held back UNTIL the remnant of God have the mind of christ, and the mark of the Christ. To be SEALED means to be PROTECTED from Judgment. (Ezekiel 9:4-6)
RECEIVE THE MARK OF CHRIST
The remnant of God (the bond slaves) are those who are ABIDING in the Lord, and living in complete obedience to His voice. These ones will be UNTOUCHABLE in the coming days for they are SEALED and PROTECTED from His judgment. Just like pass over, those who had the mark of blood on their door posts were hidden and protected from the angel of death; And so will God’s remnant be hidden and protected when the perfect storm comes— only those who are NOT abiding in the Lord will fall.
THE FEAR OF THE LORD WILL BE RESTORED TO THE CHURCH
For many years the Lord has spoken to me about how He is going to restore the FEAR OF THE LORD to His church, especially during times of great darkness and deception. However, in early November 2021, His voice became more serious when I heard Him say these words— There was an urgency and an awakening to the reality of the all consuming, all powerful, almighty God was about to crash in on us in ways we have NEVER seen, heard, experienced or imagined before. And as I heard Him speak these words, I saw how the wicked were taken out, one by one, they would FALL. But the remnant of God were on their knees in awe of what had just taken place— It was the justice and vengeance of the Lord. They were in such awestruck wonder of how the Lord protected them and kept them safe in such times of darkness.
GOD WILL GREATLY PROTECT YOU WHEN YOU ABIDE IN HIM
ABIDE MEANING IN MERRIAM-WEBSTER:
Withstand, Await, Remain Stable, Accept without rejection, Continue in a place, Abide In the house of the Lord, Conform to His ways, Abide by His rules and decisions.
This is a time like no other where the Lord is inviting us to ABIDE in Him like never before. And as we do, He promises to GREATLY protect His people— Yes, even in the days of deep darkness.
“When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm. How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us? When you abide under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High. He’s the hope that holds me and the stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great confidence. He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and he will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse. His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm. You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you. Don’t fear a thing! Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you, nor will the powers of evil be launched against you. Even in a time of disaster, with thousands and thousands being killed, you will remain unscathed and unharmed. You will be a spectator as the wicked perish in judgment, for they will be paid back for what they have done!”
“God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go, defending you from all harm. If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you and keep you from stumbling. You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness, trampling every one of them beneath your feet! For here is what the Lord has spoken to me: “Because you loved me, delighted in me, and have been loyal to my name, I will greatly protect you. I will answer your cry for help every time you pray, and you will feel my presence in your time of trouble. I will deliver you and bring you honor. I will satisfy you with a full life and with all that I do for you. For you will enjoy the fullness of my salvation!” Psalms 91:1-16 TPT
